    Default Lawyer. Warrior.

    There's a couple billboard signs on my drive home that make me laugh and this is one of them:



    I believe most of the lawyers on this board are good guys and good lawyers but lawyers in general have a bad rep and I tend to think it's due to people like Chad Pinkerton.

    I'm pretty annoyed with the ones advertising on the cable TV channels. Dealing with mesothelioma must be a goldmine because there are a bunch of lawyers fishing for new clients there. And that Sokolove guy might have been the first there, but now has at least half a dozen other things he's trying to collect money on.

    I suggest reading King of Torts by John Grisham for a better understanding of how the system works. Actually he's written several books on the subject of Tort law looking at it from both sides. Makes you think, anyway.

    OMFG. He's a personal injury specialist, too... nothing wrong with that, but really? Warrior? I can see if you're a criminal defense guy or something, but wow.

    That last volley of correspondence to State Farm was very valiant and heroic. What a warrior.

    I love the Troy Walker "Bulldog" billboard at Point of the Mountain in Utah. Very egotistical. But, I know the name Troy Walker now, and I wouldn't have otherwise.
    There are only four people on this board who know as much about football as I do, and only one of them is a Ute.

    I am defending a client in case where the plaintiff's attorney is out of Dallas Texas. His name is "Red Dog" Jones. Seriously, that is what he goes by; I have no clue what his real first name is. I could understand this among friends, but as a professional moniker?

We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    Hey, where did the viking relay post go? Now my other post makes no sense.

    clearly I've missed all sorts of things in my absence. Didn't realize you couldn't post for banned posters. Unfortunate.

    The concept of personal injury exists here but my dealings and travel to the States has left me with the impression that tort related to injury is more prevalent on your side of the Atlantic than in the U.K.

    I have seen numerous advertisements, particularly on television in New York, for such services. They all seem to be rather the same: you have been maligned, you might be the little person in the fight, we will help you.

    I fail to see how this fellow's advertisement is any different from the them of the rest. Rather, it seems he conveys precisely the message he needs to those who have been injured. It is his business , as it were, to propagandise his services thus, correct?

    I am new here and there are a lot of things I fancy about this place, but taking blows at others is bad karma, mate, and seems unbecoming of a place that would like to be thought of as a community, particularly one that may not be affiliated formally with our church, but will always be loosely considered as such.

    This applies far more to other postings I have read here than this but it struck me as I read this that this place seems to have veered far away from community in many senses. My sojourn here may be short and sporadic, admittedly, but this is my distinct impression of the place.

    Would it not be better if we all used our real names? Would that not elevate the tone of discourse here? The fellow you cite uses his name, yet you do not...seems boorish to criticise in anon.

    Same could probably be said for tort in the US versus Europe.

    Friends mother traveled to Europe. She's old and frail - needs a cane to walk. She was going through the automatic doors at a hotel, when they slammed shut suddenly. She was knocked to the ground, hit her head, was bruised in several places and had a slight concussion. Someone at the hotel helped her up. She complained to the hotel manager about the door - and his response was essentially "Yeah, that door is kind of bad. You've got to watch it or it could hurt you."

    No scrambling to offer free stays or reduction in her rate. Gotta imagine if this was in the US the door would've been fixed by now and momma would have some new shoes!

    lol. Yes by all means, let's refrain from mocking a random cheesy ambulance chaser billboard.

    You make a good point, but you picked a terrible time to make it.
    So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

    I will have to take a pic of the billboard that I have of myself on I-15. It says simply:

    WANT RESULTS?
    UteStar - Businessman, American Patriot, Lover of Results and Justice

    I am shirtless and I have a $1,000 bill in my hand, a bald eagle on my shoulder and an american flag draped over my other shoulder. I don't even need to describe what kind of business services I am selling. My phone has been ringing off the hook.

    I apologise. I don't have much time during the day and chose not to create a new thread in entirety and rather chose this thread, which I admit was not the right place. But the commando chap makes my point rather well. If I had to take a flutter on it, I'd say quite a few here are expert at "road rage".

    I thought your point was to make sure we all think you're from England?
